LON­DON IN­TER­NA­TIONAL MIME FES­TI­VAL

Where London - - Welcome -

FROM MON­DAY 9 JAN­UARY

Ac­ro­bat­ics, manga-in­spired drama and masked cabaret are just some of the per­for­mances you can find at the Lon­don In­ter­na­tional Mime Fes­ti­val. Now in its 40th year, the event hosts shows by estab­lished and emerg­ing artists across the cap­i­tal in venues from the South­bank Cen­tre to the Bar­bican. High­lights this year in­clude the jug­gling show Smashed (above), in which ev­ery­thing from ap­ples to crock­ery gets thrown in the air; the UK premiere of Here Lies Shake­speare, which uses taxi­dermy an­i­mal pup­pets in El­iz­a­bethan at­tire to de­bate Shake­speare au­thor­ship; and the show Relic, which will put a smile on your face with its masked, cos­tumed green dolls tak­ing care of house­hold chores! www.mimel­on­don.com
